Frightening Trailer For The James Wan-Produced Horror Film THE CURSE OF LA LLORONA

eerie-poster-released-for-the-james-wan-produced-horror-film-the-curse-of-la-llorna-social.jpg

New Line Cinema has released a trailer and poster for their upcoming James Wan-produced horror film The Curse of La Llorona. As you will see, this film has a very creepy vibe that is probably going to scare the crap out of a lot of people.

The movie is based on the real-life Latinx folklore of the ghost of a weeping woman who terrorizes as she attempts to take children and scares the shit out of anyone who gets in her way. The trailer prominently features a scene where two kids are being terrorized by the ghost while in a car. We don’t normally see hauntings in cars, so I thought that was pretty cool.

The film stars Linda Cardellini (Avengers: Age of Ultron), Patricia Velasquez (The Mummy), Sean Patrick Thomas (Barbershop: Back in Business) and Raymond Cruz (Better Call Saul). The story is set in 1970s Los Angeles and Cardellini plays a widowed social worker raising her two kids. As she investigates a case, she starts to find similarities between it and a supernatural entity that is her own family.

This is the full synopsis for the film:

La Llorona. The Weeping Woman. A horrifying apparition, caught between Heaven and Hell, trapped in a terrible fate sealed by her own hand. The mere mention of her name has struck terror around the world for generations.

In life, she drowned her children in a jealous rage, throwing herself in the churning river after them as she wept in pain.

Now her tears are eternal. They are lethal, and those who hear her death call in the night are doomed. La Llorona creeps in the shadows and preys on the children, desperate to replace her own. As the centuries have passed, her desire has grown more voracious…and her methods more terrifying.

In 1970s Los Angeles, La Llorona is stalking the night—and the children.

Ignoring the eerie warning of a troubled mother suspected of child endangerment, a social worker and her own small kids are soon drawn into a frightening supernatural realm. Their only hope to survive La Llorona’s deadly wrath may be a disillusioned priest and the mysticism he practices to keep evil at bay, on the fringes where fear and faith collide.

Beware of her chilling wail…she will stop at nothing to lure you into the gloom. Because there is no peace for her anguish. There is no mercy for her soul. And there is no escape from the curse of La Llorona.

This is a crazy eerie first trailer! I loved what I saw and I can’t wait to see the movie! This actually looks like it’s going to be a proper terrifying horror movie!

The film was directed by Michael Chaves (Chase Champion) and was written by Mikki Daughtry and Tobias Iaconis

The Curse of La Llorona is set to hit theaters April 19, 2019.

The Hit Netflix Series ORANGE IS THE NEW BLACK Will Come To an End After Season 7

the-hit-netflix-series-orange-is-the-new-black-will-come-to-an-end-after-season-7-social.jpg

If you’re a fan of the hit Netflix series Orange is the New Black, I’ve got some sad news for you. In a recent video message posted on Twitter, member of the cast and crew announced that the series would be coming to an end after Season 7. In the video they all thank the fans for the support that the show has had over the years.

Orange is the New Black is one of Netflix's longest-running and most-awarded series. It’s a fantastic show that I’ve enjoyed watching of the course of its six season and it’s kind of a bummer that we only have one more Season to go, but I’m looking forward to seeing how this story comes to a close.

The series centers around Piper Chapman (Taylor Schilling), a public relations executive with a career and a fiance when her past suddenly catches up to her. “In her mid-30s she is sentenced to spend time in a minimum-security women's prison in Connecticut for her association with a drug runner 10 years earlier. Forced to trade power suits for prison orange, Chapman makes her way through the corrections system and adjusts to life behind bars, making friends with the many eccentric, unusual and unexpected people she meets.”

The series was created by Jenji Kohan and it is based on Piper Kerman's memoir, Orange Is the New Black: My Year in a Women's Prison, which is about the experiences she had while serving time at FCI Danbury, a minimum-security federal prison. 

What makes the show so great are the characters that have been introduced in the story and following each of their story arcs over the years has been a fun and entertaining experience.

If you haven’t watched the show yet, all of the episodes are currently streaming on Netflix. You should give it shot!

New Trailer For DEATH HOUSE which is THE EXPENDABLES of The Horror Genre

It’s been two years since the first trailer for horror film Death House has been released. But, today we’ve got a new trailer to share with you for the film, which has been described as The Expendables of the horror genre. Why? Because it brings together some of the the horror genre’s most popular actors. It definitely looks like it’s a crazy-ass horror movie!

The cast of the film also includes Dee Wallace (E.T., Cujo, The Howling), Robert Englund (A Nightmare on Elm Street), Kane Hodder (Friday the 13th), Doug Bradley (Hellraiser), Bill Moseley (House of a 1000 Corpses), Michael Berryman (The Hills Have Eyes), Danny Trejo (Machete), Barbara Crampton (Re-Animator), Ken Foree (Dawn of the Dead), Don Shanks (Silent Night Deadly Night), and Camille Keaton (I Spit on Your Grave). That's largest collection of horror actors in a single film.

The movie was directed by B. Harrison Smith, from a script written by Gunnar Hansen, who is best known for playing Leatherface in the Texas Chainsaw Massacre films. Smith said that he made Death House as a way to help reinvigorate the horror genre. He hopes the film will be a cultural timepiece for the genre. He and his team set out to make something great, something that hardcore horror fans would respect and appreciate. The movie is also said to be packed full of horror movie Easter eggs.

Here’s the detailed synopsis for the film:

The Death House is the Area 51 of Evil… a subterranean government facility that holds humanity’s worst on nine levels. Hell, Dante’s ninth level, holds the Five Evils… the “dark stars” of Death House. These individuals are so heinous they can never walk among society again. They may also be supernatural.

Agents Toria Boon and Jae Novak have their own dark pasts, arriving at Death House to tour its levels and observe its denizens first-hand as well as the medical and mental experiments of Drs. Eileen Fletcher and Karen Redmane. Their depraved experiments date back to the Nazi doctors of WWII.

Prison cells are virtual reality holo decks that recreate prisoner environments before they were incarcerated. A special hallucinogenic gas keeps inmates under control. The victims are homeless, bused into Death House to play literal victims while killing habits are studied. The results are sick, but only a hint of what goes on here.

Hell literally breaks loose inside the facility when an EMP device detonates, killing all power and communication and… releasing every prisoner. Boon, Novak, and Fletcher are caught in a race against advancing prisoner hordes led by occultist Neo-Nazi Sieg. The monsters are freed, and they’re going down.

Boon and Novak’s fight through Death House turns into a house of horrors gauntlet; their only hope of escape is descending into Hell and enlisting the help of the Five Evils. Events culminate in a violent face-to-face standoff with absolute evil… only to find that they have traveled down a rabbit hole and through a looking glass. Black is white and white is black and the definitions of good and evil no longer apply.

Who are the monsters? Who will escape?

The movie is described as having an '80s horror film tone, and it's explained that this isn't a mashup of these actors' onscreen personas, "rather it is a fresh horror/sci fi/action story that dares to be different and give audiences something new in an age of reboots, remakes, and regurgitation."

The movie will finally be released on November 6th and the director hopes to make four more films in the Death House franchise. Seeing as its taken two year to release the first movie, I’ll be surprised if we see a sequel.

Michael B. Jordan Will Play a Deadly Assassin in a New Thriller Called THE SILVER BEAR

Michael B. Jordan (Black Panther, Creed II) has signed on to a new action thriller called The Silver Bear. He will play a deadly assassin named Columbus and it’s based on the book series by Wanted and 3:10 to Yuma screenwriter Derek Haas.

The film is set up at Lionsgate and they are hoping that this will be a successful franchise for them. The script for the film was written by Frank Baldwin (The Godmother, Hard Powder) and it tells the formative story of a man who becomes the most feared and respected hit man in the criminal underworld.

There are five books in the series and they center on an assassin “who is so effective he becomes what Russian criminals call a silver bear: he never fails, and he seems immune to the stresses of his work. But he comes up against his own nightmarish origins when he takes on the job of killing the Speaker of the House, who is also a leading presidential candidate—and Columbus’ father.”

Jordan has become such an incredible and powerful actor. Who would have thought that after his run on The Wire and Friday Night Lights his career would have exploded. He’s taking on one great film project after another. The next film we’ll see him in is Creed II. He’s shooting the Destin Daniel Cretton-directed Just Mercy.

The Silver Bear sounds like another film for him to take on. Lionsgate Motion Picture Group chairman Joe Drake called The Silver Bear “the kind of story that needs to be experienced on the big screen and Michael is the perfect movie star to inhabit the skin of this dynamic character and take us into the cinematic world of Columbus.”

FAST AND FURIOUS Producer Sues Universal Pictures over HOBBS AND SHAW Spinoff Film

Sheesh! This Fast and Furious spinoff film Hobbs and Shaw has caused a lot of drama since it was announced! It caused heated issues between Dwayne Johnson, Vin Diesel, and Tyrese Gibson.

Now Fast and Furious producer Neal Moritz is looking to cause a little drama of his own. He is suing Universal Pictures over the film for “breach of oral contract and promissory fraud over being tossed out the door of the spinoff led by Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham.”

In the lawsuit filed with Los Angeles Superior Court, it says, “This case presents a classic example of Hollywood greed.” Basically, Moritz wants to be reinstated as lead producer on Hobbs and Shaw, which recently started shooting, or be paid out “tens of millions dollars in damages in lost compensation” from the studio. The complaint says:

“In an extraordinary show of bad faith, and just a few days before filming was set to begin on Hobbs and Shaw, Universal took the position that Moritz either had to amend his oral producer deal to accept substantially inferior financial terms, or be cut out of the Picture altogether. Remarkably, despite Moritz having complete Pay-or-Play protection on all of his last several deals on the FF Franchise and having relied on Universal’s oral promises, Universal also took the extraordinary position that it was free to exploit Moritz’s ideas for Hobbs and Shaw, and his work product over an approximately year-and-a-half period, without honoring its oral producer agreement.”

The court filling goes on to say that, “Indeed, Universal has claimed that it can move forward with Hobbs and Shaw without providing Moritz with any credit or compensation.” Then adds, “If Universal believes that it can treat one of its most successful producers with such extraordinary bad faith, one can only imagine how Universal treats its lesser established producers.”

Apparently, the initial pitch for Hobbs and Shaw between Universal Pictures president Jimmy Horowitz and writer Chris Morgan resulted in verbal deal in which Moritz was supposed to receive “$2 million in fixed compensation applicable against a 6% first dollar gross participation.” That “participation would be reducible with all other first dollar gross proceeds participation on a pro rata basis, along with a defined Over Budget Adjustment provision, which was the first dollar gross compensation option in the FF8-10 Agreement.” Then the studio changed things up on him right before the film started shooting.

They all believed that the deal was solid. I’m actually pretty surprised that big producers and studios like this are still making verbal deals! You’d think they’d want to protect themselves by signing contracts! It’s not surprising that people in Hollywood are trying to screw each other over. They’ve been doing it for years!

The lawsuit isn’t going to effect the production of the film. It will move forward and will be released on August 11th, 2019. But, you can bet that this lawsuit is going to leave bad blood between Moritz and the studio.

A Young Man Suspects His Dad is a Serial Killer in Trailer For THE CLOVEHITCH KILLER

A trailer has been released for a new serial killer thriller called The Clovehitch Killer, which tells the story of a young man who starts to suspect his dad is a serial killer after coming across some unsettling evidence while rummaging through his dad’s shed.

The movie looks like it’s going to be pretty intense as the boys dad starts to suspect his son is on to him. I imagine that this story isn’t going to end well for anyone. The movie stars Charlie Plummer (from Lean on PeteThe DinnerAll the Money in the World) as the boy Tyler and Dylan McDermott as his dad. Here’s the synopsis:

Tyler Burnside (Charlie Plummer) is a Boy Scout, a volunteer at his local church, and the dutiful son of an upstanding, community leader dad (Dylan McDermott). Only one thing troubles the quiet Kentucky town he lives in: the unsolved murders -- in which ten women were brutally tortured and killed by a psychopath known as Clovehitch -- that rocked the community more than a decade ago. When Tyler discovers a cache of disturbing images in his father's possession, he begins to suspect that the man he trusts most in the world may be Clovehitch -- and that his deadly rampage may not be over. 

The movie was directed by Duncan Skiles and also stars Samantha MathisMadisen BeatyBrenna Sherman, and Lance Chantiles-Wertz. The Clovehitch Killer will be released on November 16th. Check out the trailer below and let us know if it’s a film you think is worth checking out.

Honest Trailer For ANT-MAN AND THE WASP Pokes Fun at The Feature Length Game, Capture The Lab

honest-trailer-for-ant-man-and-the-wasp-pokes-fun-at-the-feature-length-game-capture-the-lab-social.jpg

The Screen Junkies have released their latest episode of Honest Trailers and this one has some fun joking around at the expense of Marvel’s Ant-Man and The Wasp. I love the Ant-Man films! I know they aren’t considered to be the best of the Marvel films, but they have still been incredibly fun and entertaining!

Ant-Man and The Wasp also plays a big role in the future of the MCU, especially with the inclusion of the Quantum Realm because we all know that’s going to play a big part in Avengers 4. Regardless, this is a fun episode of Honest Trailers that fans of the film will get a kick out of. Enjoy!

Check Out This Awesome Rare 1980 Documentary For THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK!

check-out-this-awesome-rare-documentary-for-the-empire-strikes-back-social.jpg

There are a lot of old documentaries and behind-the-scenes “making of” videos from the 70s and 80s that have been made for George LucasStar Wars films. Most hardcore fans have seen many of them, but today we have a rare one to share with you that has said to have been lost and you don’t want to miss it!

The hour-long 1980 documentary puts the focus on the making of The Empire Strikes Back and it’s packed full of all kinds of awesome behind-the-scenes footage! It’s so cool to get a new in depth look at the development of the Star Wars film that so many fans love.

The doc also features some wonderful interviews with Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher and Harrison Ford. George Lucas isn’t around much, but listening to director Irvin Kershner and Gary Kurtz talk about the film is so cool. It’s interesting to hear Kershner talk about how the film is a not a sci-fi movie, and explain why it’s more of fairytale story.

It’s also funny to watch Hamill, Fisher, and Ford talk about the love triangle between Luke, Leia, and Han because they have no idea at the time that Luke and Leia are brother and sister! There’s so much great stuff packed into this doc and I enjoyed watching ever bit of it.

The doc was directed by Michel Parbot for Sygma Television and it comes to us from Adywan and was originally shared on Nerdist. Apparently, Adywan managed to get a DVD copy of the documentary that a man in France made after winning a reel copy of the film at an auction. This is the first time the doc has been seen since it first aired back in 1980.

I thoroughly enjoyed watching this doc. It completely made my day!

HELLBOY Reboot Director Neil Marshall to Helm a New Witch Horror Film Called THE RECKONING

MoviePass surprisingly isn’t dead yet and they are new producing horror film project called The Reckoning. According to Deadline, Neil Marshall (Hellboy, The Descent) has been hired to direct it.

I’ve enjoyed the films that Marshall has made over the course of his career and it’s great to see that he’s taking on another horror project. He actually co-wrote the script with Edward Evers-Swindell and Charlotte Kirk. Kirk (Ocean’s Eight) will also star in The Reckoning.

The Reckoning is described as a female-driven story, which is set “around the witch hunts and the great plague in England in 1665 and follows Evelyn Haverstock (Kirk), a young widow, haunted by the recent suicide of her husband Joseph, who is falsely accused of being a witch by her jealous Landlord, Squire Pendleton, after she rejects his unwanted advances.”

Sounds like it could be a great movie! I love the era and setting of the story. There’s such a dark and fascinating history there for the creative team to play with in this movie.

Production on the film will begin on January 15th in Wales.
